Ms. Burch provides excellent advice; legal & business; a huge asset to our business.
Extremely knowledgeable, a deep sense of professionalism and a solid understanding of her clients needs are just a few of the characteristic which describe Ms. Burch. Two years ago Ms. Burch successfully negotiated a positive resolution to what could have been a costly contract/agreement dispute. Recently we had the opportunity to hire Ms. Burch for a commercial real estate transaction. We were so glad we hired her to review the purchase agreement as she pointed out several contract interpretation issues and other complexities that might have been outside the realm of comfort of a real estate agent. In the end her attention to detail saved us a significant about of money.

Negotiating and settling a lawsuit can be very intense and stressful. But truthfully, I am grateful for being referred to Renell. She is professional and highly skilled in negotiating and taking a case through the court system. She was a great advocate for me, she listened and was able to turn what I thought was going to be a long court battle into a settlement for my company. Since my lawsuit I have called Renell and she has continued to counsel and advise me when business related issues arise. Renell is the only lawyer I trust to handle my affairs. I highly recommend her and her office.

Ms. Burch enforced an oral contract for me and negotiated an out-of-court settlement. While opposing counsel(s) caused many unnecessary twists and turns, numerous delays and refusals to cooperate in depositions, Ms. Burch maintained a high level of integrity and never stooped to the tactics of other attorneys. I believe this resulted in a high level of respect from judges and mediators associated with my case, thus helping to support a fair out-of-court settlement. On a personal note, Ms. Burch always treated me with a high level of respect, always kept me well informed and built a unique relationship with me as part of her legal team in my case. Ms. Burch worked hard on my case. She was truly concerned about my welfare.
